The 14-year-old Cameroonian Peace Campaigner Honoured by Dutch Children's Rights Group
KidsRights, which has been handing out the prize since 2005, said it is awarding the International Children's Peace Prize to Thunberg and peace activist Divina Maloum. Maloum has set up an organisation called Children for Peace that tours schools, mosques and marketplaces in her native Cameroon speaking to children who could fall prey to groups like Boko Haram. The activist also promotes the role of children in peace and sustainable development efforts. The children's peace prize is linked to a $110,000 grant which is invested in projects linked to the winners' causes. The prizes were handed out by Indian children's rights activist and 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi at a ceremony in The Hague.
